Denon DJ Adds Streaming And More To Prime Series Hardware With 1.4 Update

Today, Denon DJ released the new 1.4 firmware update for their Prime Series family of hardware. This version finalizes some features which have been teased or in beta for some time, and also brings a few unseen features to the table. Highlights include:

Tidal Integration Via Wi-Fi And Wired Connections
Users can now stream music directly to Prime Series hardware from the first of Denon DJ’s streaming partners, Tidal.

Improved quantized cue and loop triggering

Denon DJ has announced that its Prime series hardware will soon be internet-capable and integrated with a variety of music streaming services. That means that, for the first time ever, DJs will be able to stream music directly from DJ hardware without a laptop.

The following streaming platforms will be integrated: SoundCloud Go+, TIDAL, the newly launched Beatport LINK service, as well as Beatport and DJcity’s forthcoming service Beatsource LINK.

Denon DJ’s Creative Director, Paul Dakeyne, said in the press release:

“With both Wi-Fi and physical internet connection now engaged across the Prime Series hardware, plus access to the huge amount of digital music content from the industry’s premier streaming services, DJs no longer need a laptop computer. This changes everything – right here, right now!”

The Beatport LINK integration will also introduce the first-ever service that enables DJs to store tracks directly on DJ hardware and play them offline. Offline storage will be made available as part of two forthcoming plans: Beatport LINK PRO, which will allow DJs to save up to 50 tracks, and Beatport LINK PRO+, which will allow DJs to save up to 100 tracks.

Beatsource is a forthcoming music service from Beatport and DJcity for open-format DJs. It will include an a la carte download service and the Beatsource LINK streaming service, the latter of which will be integrated into Denon DJ’s Prime series hardware.

Denon DJ’s streaming integrations will be rolled out via firmware updates starting in summer.
